Forum: faqs Subject: Editing/translation/subtitling.

Hi.

I plan to make a documentary out of one of the movies found here. I would like to make some minor adjustments to the sound and pics, and translate it into my own language by making subtitles. The movie is this: http://www.archive.org/details/nazi_concentration_camps After some hard work I plan to redistribute the final work to schools and others which might be interested. Does anyone know if it's allowed to make some money out of this? Not for the movie as "raw material" but for the work (editing/translation), which I plan to do? In such case, it would be a minor amount I will ask for and I do not, at all, expect to get paid by the hours. It's more like a "prestige-project".

Stay cool,

ntbs.

Hi,

We can't offer you any help on dealing with copyright issues, since we're not lawyers. The item was posted with a Public Domain license, and if that's the case, then you should be able to do anything you want with it. If you want to be sure, you should hire a copyright lawyer to research the item for you. You may also want to contact the source of the footage, which is listed in the description as National Archives in College Park, Maryland.

Thanks,

Alexis
